My 94 year old mother with LBD has been living with my husband and myself going on 2 years. It is a constant battle with her. She will say some really low blow things to me and I am knowledgeable enough to know it’s the disease but it’s hard to just turn the other cheek. I now am handling by just shutting down and detaching from her. I think it is my way of not continuing to be hurt by her words. But I also have no empathy any longer. She is taken care of and has whats she needs. I feel guilty I no longer care emotionally.
Has anyone else reached this point?
